You have just left the hair salon with your brand-new, luscious Hairdreams Extensions, and you feel like a completely different person; you are stunning and invigorated. You have such positive feelings about the way your hair feels.
The question here arises whether you will take measures to ensure that they continue to be in that state. We certainly hope so, and we fully anticipate that you will share this sentiment. Heat is one of the many major causes of hair damage; unfortunately, several things are beyond our control. Luckily there are some things we can do to take care of it well.
Consider the long run.
If you take proper care of your extensions, you should be able to retain them for a great deal of time. However, there is a maximum amount of time that extensions can remain in place before they begin to fall out. When you are working with your hair in any way—whether you are brushing it, washing it, or styling it in preparation for the day ahead with your favorite look—we strongly advise treating it with care at all times.
Brush with Caution
Do not brush the hair the same way you would your natural hair. Instead, use one palm to firmly grip the attachments near the root hairs, and use the other hand to sweep through your strands, beginning at the bottom and working your way up to the top.
This will ensure that the attachments stay in place while you work. This will prevent you from putting more pressure on the extensions, which could put a strain on the natural hair or even completely rip them out if you are too rough with your brush.
It is also recommended that you brush your hair regularly before going to bed and when you wake up the next morning. This will assist you in maintaining a well-groomed appearance without requiring an excessive amount of effort. Additionally, this will prevent any tangling near the base of the plant.
Try to avoid putting too much tension or pulling on your tape-ins or natural hair. This means that you should avoid doing any braids or ponytails that are extremely tight because they will put a strain on your extensions. It’s preferable to wear your hair in a low ponytail, and loose plaits are the way to go.
Choose your hair products with caution.
You cannot rely on the natural vitamins and resources that your natural hair will get from your scalp. This is because your natural hair is not chemically treated. Because your extensions are no longer attached to your head in the same way that your natural hair is, it is essential that you choose hair care products that will provide them with some extra care and treatment so that they remain healthy and do not become dry.
There is a wide variety of product lines available from a variety of manufacturers that fall under the category of treatment and conditioning product lines for hair extensions; however, the right one for you might also depend on the objectives you wish to achieve and the kind of hair you have.
Always give your Extensions a good wash.
You should wash your extensions anywhere from two to three times per week. If you wash your extensions every day, the areas where they have been bonded or taped may fall apart more quickly.
If you wash your hair extensions too frequently, you may need to use more heat to keep them from drying out. On days when you don’t wash your hair, stay away from the area near the adhesion of the extension at the root when using products that condition or oil your hair.
Do not be afraid to wash your extensions; if they have been properly applied, they will not come out of your hair as a result of washing. However, you should take care to scrub your scalp and make a lather all over your head. Before rinsing the conditioner out of the hair, only condition the mid-lengths and ends of the hair, and comb through the hair afterward.
After you have washed your extensions, we suggest you pat your natural hair dry with a towel and properly comb it through. After that, you should let your hair air dry for a little while before making an effort to blow dry and smooth it. When using extensions manufactured from actual hair, you should feel free to blow dry them.
Because prolonged exposure to high heat can cause your hair to become brittle and dry in a short amount of time, we suggest applying some kind of heat protection spray. Before using curling wands, tongs, or irons on your hair, you need to ensure that the whole length of your hair, from the root to the ends, is fully dry.
Warnings for the evening
In order to keep your hair extensions from becoming tangled while you sleep, you should either braid your hair or tie it up in a bun before going to bed. Although this step is not required, you may also wear your hair in a loose ponytail. If you are interested in doing this, you should acquire some wonderful soft scrunchies. Scarves are another option; sleeping on a silk pillowcase can also inhibit mating.
When coloring your hair, exercise caution since chemical techniques, such as highlights or even perming, can cause irreparable harm to the surface and structure of your hair. If you are interested in coloring your hair after getting extensions put in, we would be happy to assist you in selecting the products that will give you the finest results.
